Trichocereus pachanoi cv. ‘Terrassa’ | ‘San Pedro’ | Live plant

(syn. Echinopsis pachanoi cv. ‘Terrassa’, Trichocereus macrogonus subsp. pachanoi cv. ‘Terrassa’, Trichocereus macrogonus var. pachanoi cv. ‘Terrassa’)

We’re excited to offer yet another excellent Trichocereus pachanoi – our mother plant this time originating from a grower in Terrassa, Catalonia. Grown organically in sunny Spain, these are available as rooted, live plants.

‘Terrassa’ is a hardy form of Trichocereus pachanoi (syn. Echinopsis pachanoi) – also known by the name ‘San Pedro’. It’s a tough and fast-growing columnar cactus, often found growing in parts of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru. Native to the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes, the light to dark green pachanoi prefers an altitude range of roughly two thousand to three thousand metres, where it can grow up roughly nine metres high under ideal conditions. Its stems, usually forming multiple branches from the plants base, grow to fifteen centimetres in diameter and form six to eight ribs.

Trichocereus pachanoi has been used by humans for literally thousands of years, for example, as an ornamental, for religious practice and in traditional human and veterinary medicine. Like most other columnar Trichocereus species, they can handle far lower temperatures than many other cacti and are therefore quite easy to grow indoors and outdoors in USDA Zones 8-10.

Averaging roughly thirty centimetres of new growth per year (in ideal conditions), this excellent Trichocereus cactus will reward you for years to come, as long as you’re willing to provide fertile, free-draining soil and regular watering! Don’t forget a little organic fertiliser once or twice a year too…
